TLT Throwback – Year 2: Thirty-two

May your life have poetry and your poetry, life…

Three Line Thursday remains a lovely addition to the blog here at Ink In Thirds. I would like to encourage you to spread the word and enter weekly. I will be including some of the poems from the weekly contributions in upcoming issues of Ink In Thirds Magazine, so if you’d like a chance to be published: participate weekly. Also, if you have a Twitter handle include it below your submission.

Happy writing!

If you don’t know what #TLT is all about here are the cliff notes:

  • Write something that will move us! Inspired by the photo above.
  • DO NOT include the prompt word.
  • Brevity is key.
  • What can you say, convey, express in only three lines? Can you paint a visual picture with only words? Tell an entire story that begs to be read? Use your imagination.
  • No titles. Let’s keep it about the words.
  • 10 words max per line. 3 lines.
  • Post your poem in the comments and comment on others. Have fun!

This week’s prompt: Paper

  1. I write you poems on neatly cut scraps
    Fold them and send them as tiny planes

    You scatter them on plains and tear my heart to scraps.


    The boarding pass duly destroyed I wondered
    How else to relieve transatlantic flight boredom
    If I’d been older, into jail I would have blundered

  2. Many words faded away in old copy books
    Piled up and jammed into torn carton boxes
    Withering away; witnesses of a lifetime long gone.

    1. There is indeed. Many notes I wrote years ago stay untouched on dusty paper. They belong to a time period when I was another person. I moved on since then, so those words do not belong to me any longer. They are dead to me.

  3. The Invention Of Paper: pathetic, arrant laziness, humanity dumbing down.
    Why write down our thoughts – our brains remember.
    It’s sheer…what’s the word…uh…
